    agressive power management settings or a CPU cooler program/driver may help
    if the problem is overheating, however I doubt that they would actually
    solve the problem, at best they would work around it, for a while at least.
    If it is overheating you better get a better CPU fan and some heat tranfer
    compound. However I don't think that this is an overheating problem.
    Overheating CPU's usually don't start to die for a couple to a few minutes
    after bootup and even then the actual time of its death would be somewhat
    random. It takes time for a CPU to overcook itself. If it were heating
    problems serious enougth to be causing immediate crashes then I doubt very
    much that any OS would survive on that machine unless it loaded a CPU cooler
    driver immediately upon bootup. Before running out and trying to diagnose a
    hardware problem, I'd suggest first another distrib. The system on a floppy
    that I've heard about lately sounds like a good bet. A slackware boot/root
    combo would also be good
